-Flamethrower
-HP Grass
-Dragon Claw
-EQ/Wing Attack/Aerial Ace/other Special Move


Caterpie
-String Shot
-Tackle
-Bow down before the Caterpie
-All your Caterpie are belong to us...
I'm assuming the challenge says you have to keep the Caterpie in your main team...otherwise you wouldn't have posted it.. LOL

Beedrill - Dunno much here. Sludge Bomb over Toxic. Swords Dance over Mimic I guess. Endure is an option to work with Endeavor...

Raticate - Again, dunno much here... Return over Hyper Fang... Shadow Ball over Body Slam. Dunno how good/bad Super Fang is...

Pikachu
@Lightball
-Thunderbolt
-Thunderwave
-HP Water/Ice/Grass
-Substitute

or

Raichu
-Thunderbolt
-Thunderwave

-Focus Punch

Nidoqueen - Dunno much here either...EQ and Sludge Bomb for some nice STAB. I suppose you could try BoltBeam since its Sp.Att. is only slightly lower than its Attack...

My charmeleon is just if you want a special charizard, which, other than aa, is the way to go IMO ........

Sorry if it's confusing about me trying to give each person an individual set.

Charizard - HP Grass > Water since Grass covers two weaknesses while Water covers one.

Raticate - Return is more powerful than both Hyper Fang and Body Slam. And right now, Raticate can't do anything to Ghosts, so that's where Shadow Ball helps.

Pikachu - with a base Attack of 55, those physical moves won't be doing very much. At least the light ball boosts its Sp.Att. to a respectable 100, allowing it to do some decent damage with special moves. Pika needs to hit hard and hit fast since it can't take hits.

Nidoqueen - Shadow Ball is a bit better than Crunch for countering Psychics since Nidoqueen's Att is slightly better than its Sp.Att. Also, BoltBeam covers your Water and Ground weaknesses in addition to hitting many pokemon for netural or better damage.

Sorry I forgot. I find the HP water power usually ends up higher, though.


EDIT:
Nidoqueen is not meant to be fully an attacker. Have some status or protection moves, with 2 STAB moves.

Evolving pikachu makes a better difference,stat wise. Light ball is if you just want him to hit hard (he'll die in very few hits). With raichu's good sp atk, and atk, physical moves are great on him. Raticate?

Alright, newer edit. Also, I should have been more clear and said that all these Pokemon were chosen for me and I can't evolve them. So like Charmeleon can't become Charizard until I get to Lvl. 100 with him, etc.

if you decide to keep him with the light ball and as a pikachu, go with Pika Egg's suggestions. If not go with with mine with brick break as an option over mega kick, I forgot mega kick has bad pp and accuracy, plus no SE chances

Ah, well that doesn't actually change much....

Pikachu - I still cringe at the sight of Mega Kick.... I mean honestly....sure you get impressive power out of it but don't forget it has 75% accuracy and since Pika needs to get its hit in before it gets OHKO'd, I find it very unsettling to say there's a 1/4 chance that Pika will attack with Mega Kick and do nothing.... Quick Attack is ok I guess...but it really won't be useful for anything other than KO'ing an Endure+Salac+Flail/Reversal opponent when it's run off a base Attack of 55.... Thunderwave helps out its teammates and increases its survivability a bit, making it a good move for Pika. And with an effective Sp.Att. of 100, it's rather foolish to not use as many special moves as possible.

Nidorina - ok, here's where the only change comes into play. Crunch is now needed since it doesn't get Shadow Ball. Nidorina can't learn EQ, nor would it very very useful w/o the STAB, so go for Sludge Bomb.

I already said in my previous post that he should change it so stop whining, and read before you post.

^Since he says that when he gets his charmeleon to L 100, he'll evolve it, I thought that means that when he gets his nidorina to L 100, he'll evolve it, too. So that's why I put SB and EQ on Nidorina.

Shadow Tyranitar
17th September 2006, 10:49 PM
^damn you. My pika advice was for RAICHU, not pikachu. He said he'll evolve once he completes the challenge ( L 100), so I thought why not do that now.........

Also, Tyranitar is correct about the not evolving them until Lvl. 100 thing.

EQ (STAB)
Sludge bomb (STAB)

Hope i was of any help.EVER.

Shadow Tyranitar, I'm really not sure what you're raging about up there... First of all, your post was not there when I started my reply...it just happened to take a few minutes for my comments to get posted, which is why the post time is few mins later than yours. So I was in no way ignoring your post. Furthermore, the reason I gave movesets for Pikachu and Nidorina, rather than their evolved forms was because Buizeru had said he/she wouldn't be evolving them until Lv.100. There's no harm in suggesting movesets that can be used until they're evolved, as long as the final movesets (which we'd both suggested early on) can be obtained. And one final note, it might've helped if you'd said those movesets were for their evolved forms rather than leaving the unevolved forms' names in and giving us the impression that you don't know what you're talking about.

Oh, Buizeru, I'm pretty sure Surf on Pika is only available via Pokemon Box, so keep that in mind.
